ryanc -- where is your tiki bar in PA? I'm hoping it's in Pittsburgh!

I agree with Joe -- get the Crazed Mugs CD, too (www.crazedmugs.com).

Aloha, and please post some pics of your bar!

May I suggest a song from the Exotica album I'm writing? There is an excelent quality MP3 file of a song called "Island Mist". You may download it for free and use it in your tiki bar! It's about time someone started playing the corect genre of music in a new place. Not bad mouthing Mr. Buffet or Mr. Marley, but it's just not the right music for a TIKI bar. Like to get your opinion on it as a new listener to Exotica on how it compares to the classic stuff. Here is the link, it's a hidden page from the main site (I can't give this stuff away to EVERYONE, a brother has to make a buck ya know.) so you must use the link:

http://www.mindshaftmusic.com/exotica_project.htm

As I'm the composer, and you are actually trying to make your new establishment authentic, YOU sir, may have a free copy!

Mahalo and enjoy,

Tiki Bill

Well, maybe you've abandoned Marley by now, but you might want to look into vintage reggae. (After a certain amount of exotica and mellow Hawaiian music, you may want to lively up yourself and your customers just a touch. This stuff will do the trick) As a starter, try, The Harder They Come deluxe edition 2 disc set. Includes the movie soundtrack (a classic) and a second compilation CD, mostly from the mid 1960s. On the strength of that compilation, I bought The Best of the Melodians (Trojan Records), which remains a favorite - like Hui Ohana, these guys sing straight from the heart. Other vintage - Sterling Mossman's "Happy in Hawaii " is a winner, and for a modern touch, Lushy is a fine group with some fun tracks. Modern Hawaiian vocal faves - Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (aka Iz) and Kea'ili Reichel. To sample Hawaiian music, go to mele.com Oh, and no tiki bar should be without "Tiki Torches at Twilight" as sung by either John Hiatt or David Lindley. Have fun!
